Is it possible to modify the bouncing and elatic curves in the graph editor ?

enter image description here

For example, modifying the number of bounces, the amplitude, ... ?

    $\begingroup$ The amplitude can be changed with an envelope modifier, or by moving the second keyframe. $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Aug 27 '15 at 11:39
  • $\begingroup$ @batFINGER can you point to any examples of using an envelope modifier to change the amplitude of a "bounce" or how to create a custom bounce using envelope modifiers? $\endgroup$ – rob May 24 '18 at 14:26

Short answer: Not much.

The amplitude is simply whatever time you let between the two keyframes. But you can't edit anything else.

I'd recommend making your own bounces anyway. Unless you just need a quick and dirty solution and don't have much expectations, doing it manually is simpler, and it's not hard to do.

I like to make a first arc, set the apex key to Autoclamped interpolation if it isn't already (use the V shortcut), and the low keys to Vector. Then I duplicate this arc as many times I want, and I adjust the height of the curve. Scale the apex keys to adjust the timing, and use Free vectors if you really need fine-tuning frame by frame.
